8:10 am
chart. a perfect pass for a touchdown. the skins win 17-13. look out colt brennan, skin fans may have a new underdog to for. >> it was a blast. it feltgood to throw the ball around. >> later in the show we'll hear more from chase daniel and another rookie. but first many car owners consider themselves winners after taking advantage of the cash for clunkers rogram and many others cash in before the program expires. and will the unemployment picture get worse before it gets better? the new predictions next.

8:17 am
today. because we have a recession will we get a nice bounds or are we stuck in a period of low recovery, particularly in labor markets and i tend to agree with the authors that we come out of this struggling in a rocky recovery way. >> reporter: in terms of job losses, the current downturn ranks among the worst of nixon and president reagan's first days in office. but it is the milder recessions of 1990-91 and 2001, both shorter in length but both followed by jobless recoveries that better predict what lies ahead toy. because of greater use of temp workers in the last two decades. in some chart a smaller blue portion shows those laid off temporarily and that in yellow is those laid off permanently and then on top of that looms
8:18 am
the banking crisis. >> it used to bethat as you're coming out of recession, that companies could go back to the short-term financing for use to pay payroll, but now they can do not because of the credit market. >> and in a comparison of foreign economies, in inland, norway, sweden and japan, high unemployment is found to stick around even after a recession has ended. in washington, james rosen, fox news. here is our area, d.c. and virginia saw decreases in the number of unemployed but maryland's unemployment rate rose in july. a little reminder, new credit card rules took affect last thursday. now credit card companies must send you a bill at least 21 days before it's due, give you 45 days notice before raising interrates and give you the right to reject a rate change and close your account. most significant rules of the new law take affect in

the outcry over health care reform continues. now there is a clash in congress. nancy pelosi and steny hoyer. e president set the record stra >> i know soon -- no sooner want to get between you and your doctor than i want insurance companies to make arbitrary decisions about what medical care is best for you, as they do today. as i've said from the beginning, under the reform we seek, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep your plan. period. >> now crics say that it's too expensive and gives the government too much control.
8:31 am
well the talk about end of life planning provisions have struck a nerve. administration officials said the outcry over the death panels is nonsense. but fox has uncovered a work book that may bring life back into that debate. chris wallace joins with a preview of that. >> good morning, melanie. this is being used for end of life counseling for veteran affairs administration for all of the 24 million veterans. reason this is significant is because in the work book, it's 51 pages, they have one section and work sheet and they ask people, let's give you 18 different situations, tell us whether this situation would be difficult but acceptable, worth living but just barely or not worth living at all. some of them include i can no longer walk but get around in a wheelchair, i'm a burden on my family and i live in a nursing
8:32 am
home. and there are a number of critics who say that they believe that this is the teran's administration pushing an elderly veteran what may have suffered strokes and have a severe disability who may be in a wheelchair and living in a nursing home is a way of pushing them to did the right thing and not linger and that's why one of the top critics who we'll be talking about at the top of the hour calls this the death book for veterans. we'll talk about the man who broke starty and we'll talk with an assistant secretary of veteran as fairs at the top of the hour. i think it will be a very explosive debate. >> and chris, one of the interesting things about this manual, is that the bush administration at one time decided it was not appropriate to use. >> that's exactly right. in fact this fella that we're going to talk to, jim tewy, who is a top advisor, found out about it, told the bush white house and they killed it but last month in july it was reinstated by the obama administration. >> and of course we can expect this will stir up conservatives
8:33 am
and debate. but this week at least, reforms biggest hurdle is the democrats trying to get each other to agree. >> that's right. because the fact is the democrats have a big majority in the house and in the senate and if they all stick together, they could pass whatever they want without a single republican vote. but you've got this big division between the liberals in the democratic base, who are saying we need a public option, we need more government involvement, and moderates who want to cut the costs and desperately feel that the public option is a bad idea and will lead to more expense and could lead to too much government involvement in health ca decisions. so with the split within the party, they don't have the majority they need at this point it seems to pass the bill through the house and the senate. >> so what about the nuclear option we've been hearing about? do you think this is something they would just talk about it to try to get everyone in line? >> it certainly is the latter, that they're trying to get everyone in line. but they could conceivably use
8:34 am
it if they needed to. and quickly, if it's a budget issue, you could pass it not in the senate, but the super majority of 60 votes, but with a simple majority of 51. that would be easier to do even with defections in democratic ranks and the president and some democratic leaders are threatening, if we can't get support from the gop, we may go it alone and do it this way. >> thanks, chris for your time. we look forward to your show today. >> you bet. >> and you can catch chris after our show. he'll be talking with jim tewy. tammy duckworth, senator arlen spector and congressman paul ryan. well the first family is looking forward to r & r. the obamas begin a week long vacation in martha's vineyard. and folks in the area are
8:35 am
excited about that. some want to catch a glimpse of the first family and some are hoping to cash in on their arrival. >> when the president comes, everybody goes crazy and the island goes crazy, but it ould be neat to come and meet him. >> i think his girls might have a lot of fun here, shopping and going out and having fun. >> i hope it does bring some of the -- it stimulates the island and we need it because the islands are hurting. >> this will be the obama's first visit to the vineyard since the election. the vineyard has served as a retreat for many presidents as far back as ulysses s. grant. and we do know they left this afternoon, trying to take care of -- let hurricane bill pass by. we'll check in with tucker barns to see what we can expect. so it will be spinning up toward nova scotia, but new england could have an issue.
8:36 am
>> bill is off to the north and eas- -rehintenheattg threinenh canadianeri time. and we had soaking rainfall tad dulles international airport yesterday. rain around here yesterday. today will be an improvement with more sunshine and drier air moving in. still a risk of a scattered shower or thunderstorm. this frontal system is very slow to get out of here. reagan national is 71 at this hour. that is better than yesterday. yesterday it was steamy out there throughout the day and we had temperatures in the 80s. 70 right now at dulles. bwi marshall is 71. here is a look at the forecast and i'll be back with details with you. but by this afternoon, we'll see highs in the mid-80s. 86 here in washington. more sunshine than yesterday and less humid. but we still can't rule out the risks of a scattered shower or thunderstorm out there. i'll have more details on bill coming up in just a minute. lanie, i'll throw it back to you. >> thank you so much.
8:37 am

8:42 am
i walked this way to the porch light. >> reporter: but jim mcnabb had no idea his heart was about to stop. >> and i went over to turn the lights off and she heard this crashing sound. >> so i come running out and from here i can see him and it looked bad. >> she ran down stairs to her husband. >> and there i was, laying on my back with my eyes wide open, but not breathing, no heart, pulse, nothing. >> i run and grab the phone. call 911 and i'm just hysterical. >> reporter: as the 911 operator guided caitlin through cpr, she remembered their friend, dr. robert al bin three doors down when he got a call from 911. >> as i get there, his wife is on the driveway and she screams, robert, i think he's
8:43 am
dead. jim's dead. >> his heart had been stopped forever ten minutes and it took paramedics 10 more to get a pulse again. >> i was out for somewhere between 15 and 20 minutes. >> you were technically dead. >> technically dead. >> reporter: and without a heartbeat, sudden cardiac arrest patients usually have only about five minutes before the blood supply to their brain and other vital organs shuts down. he had been dead nearly four time that's long. >> the general expectation is that we've lost the battle. we just can't keep those tissues alive. >> reporter: jim was shed to st. joseph's hospital in atlanta. the same place dr. robert al bin had been talking about a new treatment called they'ra putic hypothermia, cooling bodies down to try to head off brain damage. >> call it fate or whatever you will, i had given the lecture five times now. >> reporter: the only problem -- >> i had never done it in my
8:44 am
life. >> reporter: jim would be robert's first patient. >> i just realized this is why i was learning about this. >> reporter: when he got to the e.r., jim was comatose and brain function did not look good. >> he kept saying, we're just trying to save his brain. >> reporter: the icu staff gave jim medication to people por airily paralyze him and then used chilled saline iv, ice and a cooling blanket to drop his temperature to 89 degrees farenheit. dr. al bin was pet rivfied. >> i had no idea whether i had resuscitated a person or my friend who would be in a vegetative state for the rest of his life. >> reporter: dr. al bin didn't know if this cold saline and cooling equipment had done its job. jim could open his eyes but
8:45 am
couldn't speak and it wasn't until dr. al bin dropped in one day that his friend who died was very much still alive. >> and i said, jim, can you hear me? and all of a sudden, his head nodded yes. >> what did you think? >> i was -- what i thought was, there is someone there. i hadn't done it for nothing. it hadn't been for nothing. >> reporter: caitlin snap this photo of jim three days after he left the hospital. >> he's a miracle. and there are other miracles out there if they can get to the right hospital and treatment. >> reporter: and the doctor believed there was only one sure thing in medicine. >> i left medical school and training knowing that i knew the difference between a living person and a dead person. and as of a couple weeks ago, i can no longer say that.
8:46 am
>> and caitlin and jim mcnabb couldn't be more grateful. >> and that was beth galvin reporting. and with heart stopping moments at fedex field, the redskins trying to come up with the first preseason win against the superbowl champs. here from the stars of the game on offense and defense and our own champion in the weather department, tucker barnes. >> thank you very much. >> here for us this morning. >> the forecast looking much improved. less humidity and i know there's a ride out there with big tigger today and right now things are looking bright. >> they're not riding. >> but they will be. and there is a the possibility of a shower in the afternoon. >> i'm sure those folks want to know how their ride to six flags is going to be. it's good to see people out there registering. we'll be right back.

school year tomorrow. other districts in maryland and northern virginia head back to class over the next two weeks. the deadline to cash in your clunker is fast approaching. at least 489,000 car have been sold through the popular program so the feds are pulling the plug tomorrow night to keep it from running out of money. deals are asking the department of transportation for more time to get claims submitted. and hurricane bill turning tord nova scotia. tropical storm warnings are in affect. authorities are urging extreme caution when going to the beach. just a few minutes they dropped the tropical storm warning. so it's now racing off to the north and east. and i'll show it to you in a minute. but it will be a soaker for the united kingdom by next week. >> it will keep going. >> yes. it will not be a hurricane or prom but it will be big. our weather, we featured a lot of rain around here yesterday. and it's
8:51 am
a cool breeze aandowda n atdown at the capitol and a miof a clouds and sunshine. we still have the risk of a erowshsh or ow thunderstorly this afternoon. oare ul iclythispa afternoon. e r darad anthd radar and we've quieted down after the soaking rains around here late yesterday afternoon and during the evening hours, we have flh flood warnings for portions of the area, including an arendel county. not much happening. but a nicestart to the day and the fog will burn off here quickly. and let's go to the rain totals yesterday, and we had record rainfall out at dulles and here at reagan national that was about 1.25 inches at dwi marshall and it varies. parts of an arendel county, they picked up over 2.5 inches of rain. so there is a lot of rain across the area. much quieter today. but the funnel system is still in the neighborhood so, we'll have the possibility as i mentioned of a few more scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.
8:52 am
71 degrees at reagan national that's better than yesterday. 71 in baltimore. 67 in winchester, what you'll notice is the humidity is more tolerable than yesterday. still up there and not quite comfortable, but better than yesterday when we were so oppressive. there is our morning satellite radar and you can see the mix of suband clouds and out to the west we're still dealing with scattered showers an even the possibility of thunderstorms bubbling up in the mountains at is hour. off to the north and east, the last of it pushing up toward new york city of bill. and hurricane bill is now racing off to the north and east. latest statement from the national hurricane center is that it's still a hurricane, maximum winds about 85 miles per hour you can see it lost it's distinct eye in the last couple of frames hoar and now it's a threat to portions of nova scotia and new finland as it continued to race off at 30 miles per hour. no longer a threat to the united states, although they will deal with high winds and waves for portions of cape cod
8:53 am
and maine. our weather, this frontal system is a slow mover. it bumped into hurricane bill in the atmosphere and it's having trouble moving through but it will very slowly chug off to the east and with it, moving slowly through the area, we have the possibility of a few more owers or thunderstorms kicking up later this afternoon. so that's why we can't reel out the possibility of a shower or thunderstorm. once it gets off the coach, the weather around here early next week will look fantastic. we'll have sunshine, lower humidity and temperatures in the middle 80s. not a bad looking forecast. mix of clouds and sun. thunderstorms and showers. high temperature of about 86 degrees. that's a nyet nice looking forecast. look at tomorrow. 85. can't rule out the possibility of a scattered shower or thunderstorm tomorrow. but by tuesday, wednesday and thursday we're featuring sunshine. humidity will be in check and high temperatures in the upper 80s. so it's starting to turn the corner. people go back to school tom and the fall weather not too far away. >> it's unbelievable.
